Transportation in/around Europe

I’ve been researching various Eurail, Eurostar, etc… tickets/prices/destinations. Frankly, it’s all starting to confuse me. I need help in picking the best means of transport. This will be my first time in Europe and I’m trying to work under a budget. If anyone has traveled in & between the countries I’ve listed, I’d appreciate any advice. I’m going to the following cities in this order: Amsterdam, Paris, London, Dublin, Amsterdam (again).

Can anyone help me?

I’ll be backpacking with a few friends in the middle of next year.

yeaah, i know is soon but we wanna get stuff really organized.

i hope anyone could give me some tips and stuff bout places we should go.

we want places with boose, people and music.

not too much, right? hahah


Enjoy Britain and Ireland On Line (Video + Stills)

The film “My Pub Runneth Over” presents a comprehensive journey to Britain and Ireland, including England (London, Stonehenge, walled cities & a castle), Wales, Ireland (kiss the Blarney Stone, Dublin, Cliffs of Moher), and Scotland (Edinburgh, the highlands, bagpipes & Loch Ness), plus interviews, and, of course, pubs.

The video can be seen on the web, if you have a high speed internet connection.

Intineray Help PLEASE- First Eurotrip IN TWO MONTHS!

My friend and I are leaving in early May for a month long trip around europe. I have posted our plan below and any help would be greatly appreciated. We are also interested in seeing some of the smaller cities as oppose to the larger cities, however you only hear people reference the larger ones so any suggestions on the smaller places to go would be great. We plan on pretty much taking a plane from country to country and then trains from city to city, but any transportation advice would also be appreciated!

Newbie in need of help! :)

Hi! So my friend and I are going on a month long trip to Europe. We are two twenty year old girls, so we would like to be safe and we would like it to be as cheap as possible. We are leaving in May. We plan to spend a month in England (around London) then go to Italy, then go island hopping around some of the greek isles. We would spend a week in each of those locations, and then the last week maybe, amsterdam or dublin or stay at one of our other locations longer.

How to get from these airports to the downtown area...without cabbing.

Okay so I’m flying through ryanair, (right there you can guess I’m on a certain kind of budget) and I don’t think cabbing it from airports would even be part of the budget.
Now, I basically need help on how to get from the following airports to the downtown area (i am trying to google, but I just don’t even know where to start or towards what area I should want to go).

Help planning my first trip to europe

Hello everyone,
I am in the early stages of planning my trip to Europe. This is my first trip to Europe, so I want to get as much in as possible, but I also want it to go over with some ease. I’m lucky, I’m traveling with my girlfriend, who speaks French, so some of the inconviences of my first trip will be moot.

Anyway, so the 2 trip options Im planning are for a 14 day span max:

1. London -> Paris (Normandy) -> French Riveria -> Rome

2. London -> Paris (Normandy) – French Riveria -> Barcelona


A. For trip 1, is this a possible trip for the 14 day span?

Work and travel - France or UK???


Im planning to work and travel from late december 2008 to june 2009 (maximum).

I cant decide between France and UK+Ireland

From your experience, which Trip would you recommend (considering the time of year, amount of money I have to spend etc.), where would it be more likely to get a job (very simple work and travel jobs), which country(ies) is more appropriate for work and travel/backpacking in general?

I understand english quite well, but I would want to improve my speaking.

My french isnt so good in general – how possible is it for me to get a job then?
